Outline planning permission for the scheme on a greenfield site between Rogerson Road and South Meadows Caravan Park was approved by Northumberland County Council on a 10-1 vote last October.

However, it was subject to a section 106 legal agreement to secure the 10 affordable homes, £25,800 to support GP facilities, and a coastal mitigation contribution of £615 per unit, totalling £22,755. That has now been signed off.

Property developers Islandshire Ltd will now have to make a further application for all reserved matters such as layout, access, scale and appearance of the development.

The proposed housing development site viewed from Rogerson Road.

A mix of 27 self-build plots and 10 affordable homes is envisaged.

The proposed self-build mix is eight three-bedroom houses, 13 four-bedroom properties and six five-bedroom dwellings, while the affordable homes would feature three two-bedroom houses, three three-bedroom properties and four two-bedroom bungalows.
